I got an error while trying to install phpmyadmin on my Raspberry Pi 3, the error message is:

dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a'

I think it's a problem related to the /var/lib folder, something went wrong and files got corrupted.

After running the command sudo dpkg -- etc... it seems everything is fine but when I try to install the package of phpmyadmin again, another error message appeared:

Error bus


Remove all the files inside /var/lib/dpkg/updates directory with the following commands:

cd /var/lib/dpkg/updates
sudo rm *

And then run this command to get the newer ones:

sudo apt-get update

    Did you mean sudo apt-get update? – pim Aug 31 '17 at 6:05
